Burning permits needed

within city limits

City residents who want to burn garden debris or other organic waste are required to get a burning permit, available at all fire stations.

The permit comes with a set of regulations, and is free to the public, Battalion Chief Dan Morrow said.

Among the regulations, "You have to have a way to put it (fire) out, and you have to be there," Morrow said. "It can't be within 50 feet of a building and can only be a small pile. You can't burn off your yard."

The ordinance only applies to property within city limits, Morrow said.
